Tony and his crew were outstanding. Tony was honest and fair, didn't try to upsell or add hidden charges, they showed up on time, and his team was very polite and efficient. Wrapped everything that need protecting, nothing was broken or damaged, no damage to the property. They thought about and asked about where things should be placed when they moved furniture in. Very professional, and exactly what you want in movers. Although I hope to not move again for a long time, these are the movers I'll call if I do.

The movers arrived on time and were fully prepared. They were courteous, professional, and expeditious in moving our boxes. Many items were art pieces and they took extra care in loading and unloading. Not one single item was damaged or knicked. This was amazing given there was one flight of stairs to deal with. Top Shelf is "tops" and I would not hesitate to use them again. Thank you for great service!

We contacted Larry when my husband had to have foot surgery the week we were moving. Larry gave us a full no nonsense quote. We moved a one bedroom apartment about 20 miles. Larry and his son showed up early and began hustling. They are not afraid to break a sweat!! They moved everything as quickly and efficiently as possible while still being careful with our belongings. Larry and his son were professional and caring with our belongings. They did not "milk the clock" like other movers do. I will be contacting Larry the next time I move and I suggest you do the same!

If I could leave 10 stars I would! These guys were awesome! I needed help the same day that I put in my request and they answered within minutes and met me at the job site within two hours. I had a real mess on my hands with previous movers that I hired and Michaelson Moving came to the rescue! They moved my entire unorganized, jam packed storage unit to a new location where it was all stacked and stored beautifully. They worked with great speed and were very responsive to all of my needs. I have another project within the next month and I will certainly call them. If you want the best call Michaelson!

My originally planned movers did not show up and Hector with Vazquez moving was able to put together a crew to move me into my home at the last minute. The crew was meticulous in protecting my belongings and were very careful not to damage my home moving out and moving in. Mosley is a great crew lead and you'll be lucky to have them manage your move. I would recommend them ... they are good people and did a great job!

These guys showed up 2 hours after I had movers bail on me!! I found them on Thumbtack and they arrived so quickly- even early! I was incredibly stressed, but Luis and Gilbert moved quickly and confidently. They were truly professional throughout and never stopped moving. They were worth every dollar, and I would hire them again in an instant!! You won’t regret choosing them!!

Any time you mention you're hiring movers, the first response is always to be careful who you hire because they will rip you off. Having read all the good reviews for Safe N Fast Movers , I figured I'd give him a chance. Sarah promptly called me to go over the details of my move and he gave me a fair and reasonable quote. Actually, who am I kidding, his price was better than anyone else I called. He had a flat rate for 3 hours and an hourly rate after that. I knew he could easily run the time up but so could everyone else. On the day of the move he was early and between him and his helper they hauled ass loading up the truck. Now it wasn't a huge move but it wasn't a studio either. A 2 bedroom with dining and patio furniture was loaded up, transported (only a few miles away) and unloaded in 2 hours 25 minutes. Nothing was broken, nothing was lost and everything was where it belonged. I would have been OK if he had taken much longer. It wouldn't have seemed out of the ordinary. But Safe N Fast Movers did it fast and was done well before I expected. I'd recommend them to anyone and I'll use him any time I need a move again.

I was so, so impressed with Generation Billiards and so grateful for how efficiently, carefully, and professionally they dealt with both the planning of and execution of disassembling/ moving/ reassembling our pool table. They were very prompt in communication and in their services, as well as being extremely kind and friendly on top of it. Their prices were very fair and made the whole process affordable for us. My husband and I wholeheartedly recommend them. Thanks again for the excellent work!

Even in 95+ degrees and close to a quarter mile of truck to door, these guys didn't slow or get down, they just got it done. Thank you Veteran Movers, we were luck to have you getting our backs!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What do moving companies do?

Moving companies provide a range of services to help you physically move out of one residence and move into a new place. But moving companies can do so much more than just haul your belongings across town in a truck. The national average for moving company prices ($250-$350 per hour) reflects the range of services provided. Here are examples of all the ways moving companies can help:

  • Packing: Moving companies can pack your belongings for you. They typically charge a flat rate for both the box and the labor to pack the box. The more time-consuming the belongings are to pack, the higher the cost per box. For example, books could be $5 per box, linens $10 per box, and fine china and glassware $18 per box.
  • Specialty moving: Safely move a baby grand piano, a oversize aquarium, or other specialty items with the help of pro movers.
  • Storage: Many moving companies can store your belongings while you wait for a new home to be remodeled or closing of your new home to be finalized. If you’re moving long-distance, they often provide short-term storage free for a specific length of time, and a set rate after that (such as $60 per square cubic foot of storage space used).
  • Long-distance moves: No need to rent a trailer and move your things; a long-distance moving company can haul your belongings across the country for you. Typically they charge by the cubic foot for moves, with prices based on your destination.
  • Unpacking: Moving companies can even unpack your belongings for you after they have moved them. This is not as common, and will definitely increase the price, but can be helpful if you’re not able to tackle this task yourself.

How much does a moving company charge per hour?

When you’re ready to make a major move, it’s time to research moving companies’ prices. A moving company may charge on average anywhere between $25 and $100 per hour, per worker, for moving services. The price will vary with regional labor rates, local cost to do business, and the level of service the movers are providing. Nationally, the average hourly rate for a moving company is $250-$350 per hour. This price includes a range of pricing, from all-in service with four or more movers on site to standard hourly rates for one or two movers. Other factors that affect moving companies’ prices are packing, stairs (or elevators), and distance. For a full-service move, you pay movers to pack your belongings for you. You may pay for the cost of the moving boxes and an hourly rate per worker, and there may be additional charges for packing fragile items. Stairs will also add to your moving prices. Lifting and carrying boxes and furniture up and down stairs takes more time and creates more physical labor for the workers. Moving companies may charge flat rates for flights of stairs, such as $50-$70 per flight. A moving company may also charge a one-time fee for moving things via elevator, such as $75-$100. If parking is not accessible in front of your home or apartment building, there may also be an additional fee for the added distance to carry your belongings to the truck.

How much should you tip furniture movers?

Moving furniture is hard work and potentially dangerous unless you’re properly equipped. For anyone not ready to handle their heavy oak armoire alone, professional furniture movers can safely and efficiently move your items to another room in your house or across town as needed. The national average cost to hire heavy furniture movers is $150-$200 per hour. This rate could include multiple furniture movers working as a team to move items such as beds, armoires, billiards tables, pianos, shelves, tables, entertainment centers and more. Hourly rates can vary by region. If your furniture movers have arrived on time, done a great job, kept your home and belongings protected from scratches and dings, and completed the move as planned, a tip will be greatly appreciated. Moving companies suggest approximately 10 percent of the total bill as gratuity for those doing local moving jobs, which is also a good guideline for tipping heavy furniture movers. If the total bill for heavy moving was $100 and two workers were onsite, consider giving them $10 total, or $5 each for a job well done.

How much does it cost for long-distance movers?

Long-distance movers transport your belongings across the country for you. No more renting a trailer and road-tripping from state to state with your entire house hitched to your bumper. Long-distance movers make the move happen so you can fly to your new home, suitcase in hand, and wait for your furniture to arrive. Nationally, the average price range for long-distance movers is $1,490-$2,230. The distance you are moving and the number of cubic feet the movers have to transport will both affect cost. Another factor in long-distance moving costs is whether you choose to pay for an exclusive move or a consolidated move.

In an exclusive move, which is more expensive, your belongings are the only cargo on the moving truck. The movers travel directly to your new house and deliver your belongings on a scheduled day. A consolidated move is more affordable because the movers transport your belongings along with those of other people, saving them time and gas — which means you save money. The downside is that your belongings typically arrive with a two-week delivery window rather than on a prescheduled day. Read reviews to make sure you can trust the company with your possessions to ensure a peaceful moving process.

How much does it cost to move a one-bedroom apartment across the country?

Professional movers can handle the hard work of moving your one-bedroom apartment across the country for you. You can determine what your move will cost by learning the rate your movers charge per cubic foot and how they factor distance into the total cost. Cross-country movers typically charge based on your belongings rather than apartment size because that determines how much work they will have to do. For example, a studio apartment that is crammed full of things will take more work and moving truck space than the contents of a three-bedroom apartment with very little furniture.

Cross-country movers may also have varying rates, depending on where in the country you are moving. For example, a company may charge $5 per cubic foot for consolidated moves along the East Coast and $6 per cubic foot for consolidated moves from the East Coast to the central states or the West Coast. A one-bedroom apartment costs approximately $1,500 to move across the country.
